What They Didn’t Teach Us

“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you in school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or poor. They don’t reach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to move on when the on e you love walks away from you. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.”

– Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones
